So, Emil is slowly getting the hang of this food stuff. But in a funny way. He does not prefer us to spoon-feed him, but obviously has a long way to go before he can spoon-feed himself. So, this nifty little gadget (gifted from sister-in-law Annie for Oliver two years ago) allows for chunks of food to be mashed up without the choking hazard. Oliver was never that into it. But Emil loved this thing! He goes to town on a chunk of apple. A wedge of banana. A big old piece of avocado (shown)- which is, no surprise, his favorite. And it’s kind of fun to stuff chunks of whatever in there for him to taste.
And the sad part? Emil chucked it from the train at the zoo on Saturday, so now is without his favorite food-masher thingy. Does anyone know what it’s called? Annie? Anyone?
